rights, but on economic rights. if you think about, for example, candidate romney's attacks on president obama and how he contributed to women's job losses, many of those losses came about under bush and then continued and reduced under president obama. the term that has been demonized by governors like gov. scott walker of wisconsin, gov. kasich of ohio -- the teachers, nurses, women working in the public sector have lost their jobs due to the failure of commitment for the federal government to give money to the states in this time of crisis, which president obama supported. but you know, i think you'd see independent women, as i said before, a growing block of women, not just progressives or democrats, democratic women, who do worry about the fact that their daughter, for example, might not have access to planned parenthood, which, by the way, is really about women's health, mammograms, and not just these hot-button issues of reproductive choice. so i do think the independent women voters are the canary in the coal mined in terms of the seeing a republican party that is not hospitable
but on economic rights. if you think about, for example, can it romney's on president obama and how he contributed to win an's job losses -- candidate romney on president obama and how he contributed to women's job losses. it is a term that has often been demonized by governors, like governor scott walker of wisconsin. you see independent women, as i said before the you see a growing block of women, not as progressive democrat who do worry about how their daughter may not have access to planned parenthood. that is really about women's health, mammograms, and other health issues. not just these hot-button issues of reproductive choices. i think the independent women voters will make the difference in seeing a party that is not hospitable to women's health rights and linked to that, as i said, in order to control your economic destiny. host: the last didn't from miami, a senior political science member -- major. caller: i guess i will and where we began on that article about the 1%. i wanted to rescue -- ask you how judicial nominations have gone by the wayside and why it is not look that by only fo
, where do you think the presidential race is right now? >> i think mitt romney is looking very good. that's why the obama administration didn't want to run against mitt romney. he was clearly the most threatening of the republican candidates. i think he's the strongest candidate against obama. it's hard to take out an incumbent. republicans have only done it one time before in the last 100 years. when reagan beat carter. i guess isn't the last time it's happened when clinton took out bush, right? so it's curious, for example that there were 70 million viewers of that debate the other night, the highest it's been since 1992, the last time an incumbent was taken out. i think that's because people are uncomfortable with obama but if they're not political nuts, like we are, they haven't been paying attention, haven't been watching all the debates and they just want to see who the challenger is and whether they're comfortable with him. and i think after wednesday night, everyone's pretty comfortable with mitt romney. >> you were early, looking back, i was reading back on your twitter feed last
